Fulltilt Poker Swag RANT! and MATH



WARNING BEGINING OF RANT!

Got my Fulltilt poker swag for the Main Event. I must admit that I am disappointed, from what I hear PokerStars really does it up with first class stuff. Here is what I got. One cheap duffel bag, One hat, One deck of cards, One hoodie, One Polo. NO JERSEYS, NO TSHIRTS, NO BOWLING SHIRT, ECT... ALSO this is just stock Fulltilt gear, you would think they would at least have something that said Team FullTilt or something. I am one the biggest FullTilt supporter there is. It is the only site i have money on and I love the interface, but come on FullTilt let go of some MOOLAH you guys rape us for and buy the Main Event Qualifiers some swag that they will be proud to wear. One other thing isn't freaking HOT in July WTF am I going to do with Hoodie at the ME. Oh and I guess that FTP doesn't plan on any of the qualifiers making it past day one since there is only one shirt, heaven forbid three or four of us make it to the Final Table because that is going to be one RIPE SMELLING group.

END OF RANT!

The MATH Tourney in two words or less: CARD DEAD! I chipped up nicely the first hour when I Flopped a set Queens against DDionysus KK and swear to God I almost laid it down to his re-raise preflop. That would be my high water mark and from then on out NOTHING. My Raise of AJ in the hijack position was called by QJ which promptly flopped a Q and River a J for two pair, my steals wear Re-raised All in by BB and SB and my soooted connectors never connected. This is the first tourney in a long long time where I was actually blinded down to making a lowly stand with a 92 off because I didn't have enough to post the SB in the next hand. Absolutely pathetic run of cards. I finished in the points but a disappointing 20th. BLEH!

FYI the poker room at the WSOP is FREEZING COLD 24 hours a day. Bring warm clothes or you'll freeze in your chair.

that was me w/ the QJ suckout -- i admit it was pretty ridiculous. QJ was killing for me last night.

Thanks Fuel the Hoodie will go in the bag. I sent the same letter to FTP I am curious if I get a response. It just chaps my azz that I really enjoy FTP but they really are missing the boat when it come to their customers. I mean you read about Stars 10 Billion hand giveaway, about their 2nd Supernova hotter than the freakin Sun who will earn possibly 3 Aston Martin with his FPP, and How come by the Stars Suite at the TI. What do we the FTP players who have stayed loyal stayed true get, bumpkus. No FTP suite in vegas, no nothing.

QJ wasnt that Brutal but still I just couldnt connect with any flops, my style of play I have to connect with someflops sometimes in order to go to showdown. I just absolutely hate being blinded down it is so against my nature in poker.

I suppose you could always tear the FTP patch off one of the items and attach it to a shirt of your own liking. Nothing to prevent you from doing that eh?

1) Last year when I made it to day 2 I asked Rich from the Full Tilt staff if I could have a fresh shirt to wear Day 2 he was happy to accomafate.

2) There are FullTilt Staffers that can give you a FullTilt stick on patch that you can put on other shirts.

My swag last year did have World Series 2006 on it so don't know why they would have scaled this back.

I figured you were pushing with A-Q...I don't know why. I should have folded after you called that re-raise and then pushed. Nice play...I can't win with QQ or beat QQ in the past two-three weeks. My inability to fold KK or AA will get me in trouble from time to time. Congrats on the WSOP ME qualifier....Good luck...
